Leah Remini is not messing around after very publicly leaving the Church of Scientology. Now the “King of Queens” actress is filing a missing persons report for Shelly, the wife of Scientology’s leader David Miscavige.
According to Us Weekly, a spokesperson at the Los Angeles Police Department verified that Remini filed the missing persons report. "We can confirm that the missing person report has been taken and that's all the information we have at this time.”
The former Scientologist isn't afraid of making headlines by going against the contraversial church she parted ways with, but one might might wonder why she is taking it as far as filing a missing person’s report for the leader’s wife.
According to Tony Ortega, Shelly hasn’t been seen for more than six years! On his website The Underground Bunker, the former Village Voice editor wrote about what Remini was told when she asked why Shelly was missing from the 2006 wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Church spokesman Tommy Davis apparently told her, “You don’t have the f--king rank to ask about Shelly.”

According to TUB, Shelly was last seen working and living at the church’s international management headquarters, which spans nearly 500 acres. On his site, Ortega adds that it would be hard to find the wife’s leader considering the jurisdictional is a “jigsaw puzzle” that reportedly has close ties with law enforcement.
Inside the headquarters are Scientologists are housed and “completely cut off from the outside world."
But according to Shelly’s lawyer, she’s just fine. "Any reports that she is missing are false," the unnamed attorney told Us Weekly. "Mrs. Miscavige has been working non-stop in the Church, as she always has."
Whether or not Shelly is actually missing is just one of the mysteries surrounding Scientology. But some truth might be on the way: Remini told Us Weekly that she was writing a tell-all memoir, which will include everything that is “too taboo to talk about.”
